. you know. the french government is seeking tougher laws on sexual consent it follows the acquittal of a man who was charged with raping an eleven year old girl charlotte dubinsky takes
5:12 pm
a closer look. well the thirty year old man who was acquitted of raping the eleven year old girl when he was twenty two years old this is a case it's been in the court system for some time in france and the fact that he was acquitted of raping this eleven year old girl has caused absolute controversy here in france people describing an eleven year old child as being innocent as being unable to give consent to sexual relations godless of what the situation was now some of the details of this case have been pretty horrific it turns out that the girl who is eleven years old at the time she became pregnant following that sexual encounter and then later gave birth to a child a child that's now in the foster system here in france well that's led to french ministers discussing a proposal to change the law to create a presumed age of consent in france but ministers say that that presumed age of consent could be as low as thirteen and that has caused extreme controversy here in
5:13 pm
france with many people unhappy that a child at the age of thirteen could be able to say yes or no to having sexual relations scandals proposal governments or media what do you have inside your had friends will become a tourist destination for pedophilia thirteen years still too young why do we absolutely want our kids to grow up so fast let them be children fifteen sixteen years is an age reasonable for sex questions well it's not just the only case of its kind here in france just in the last few months another man was acquitted of raping another eleven year old girl and at the time we spoke to some children's charities who are absolutely outraged at the court system here in france could deem that a child that young could give consent for sexual relations now one other time when we spoke to them they demanded that there be an immediate change in the law but
5:14 pm
they suggest that that lowest age you presume. consent should be fifteen and certainly not the thirteen that's now being scratched by french ministers and we also got some reaction to this story from people in paris but it's ridiculously low thirteen is the first stage of a teenager i personally think it should be the age of consent should be sixteen at least i think that's what it is worldwide so it's way too low. because also i think thirteen is very young to decide on the issue i guess fifteen is the most reasonable each for sexual decisions. it is easy to manipulate a person of the age to consent that's terrible thirteen is young enough for that. now in an effort to avoid discrimination police in the swiss cities care of decided not to release the nationalities of crime suspects to the media regular mention of nationality in police reports is discriminatory because it suggests that the fans
5:15 pm
can be explained by perpetrators nationality but i discussed this story with needles for chatter from the swiss people's party and also sound but he's a muslim rights campaign one of the biggest problems our country has is being politically correct because we have got massive problems with criminal furring people and it's not a solution to choose don't talk about it when you look for example at the can't there are twenty six point five percent for him people that are doing fifty four percent of all criminal activities these are problems that need to be discussed about political correctness some of our hiding statistics and factors about making sure people are more informed and that is what you can do more adequately and more properly if you don't focus on in the.
